[注释]

  若等闲:好像很平常。

 

[简析]

  这是一首托物言志诗。作者以石灰作比喻,表达自己为国尽忠,不怕牺牲的意愿和坚守高洁情操的决心。

  作为咏物诗,若只是事物的机械实录而不寄寓作者的深意,那就没有多大价值。这首诗的价值就在于处处以石灰自喻,咏石灰即是咏自己磊落的襟怀和崇高的人格。

  首句“千锤万凿出深山”是形容开采石灰石很不容易。次句“烈火焚烧若等闲”。“烈火焚烧”,当然是指烧炼石灰石。加“若等闲”三字,又使人感到不仅是在写烧炼石灰石,它似乎还象征着志士仁人无论面临着怎样严峻的考验,都从容不迫,视若等闲。第三句“粉身碎骨全不怕”。“粉身碎骨”极形象地写出将石灰石烧成石灰粉,而“全不怕”三字又使我们联想到其中可能寓有不怕牺牲的精神。至于最后一句“要留清白在人间”更是作者在直抒情怀,立志要做纯洁清白的人。

于谦为官廉洁正直,曾平反冤狱,救灾赈荒,深受百姓爱戴。明英宗时,瓦剌入侵,英宗被俘。于谦议立景帝,亲自率兵固守北京,击退瓦剌,使人民免遭蒙古贵族再次野蛮统治。但英宗复辟后却以“谋逆罪”诬杀了这位民族英雄。这首《石灰吟》可以说是于谦生平和人格的真实写照。
